What is your opinion on the necessity for businesses to align their offerings with newer technological developments, especially when it comes to Digital Transformation?
We are currently experiencing one of the most important changes in the construction industry. New products have appeared on the market much more powerful that have joined the need for the digital transformation of companies. Web products in the cloud such as BrickControl help the digital transformation of the construction sector at a very affordable cost for companies of any size.
Companies that distribute products and services for digital transformation must adapt to the most advanced products on the market, which are in the cloud, SaaS, and must offer integrations through APIs to their customers in order to meet the current demand of companies.
The end customer must evolve towards the new digital transformation because this way of operating will allow them to be more competitive and efficient in their work.

What, according to you, could be the next big change in the Construction Management Software industry? How is BrickControl preparing to be a part of that change?
We believe that an important change that is going to take place, is that the most technologically advanced products automatically integrate (without added developments) with each other in real time through APIs so that companies choose the best product in each category. Until recently, companies were looking for an ERP that would solve all the problems of the company, this often resulted in integrated software, but with many shortcomings in some areas and difficult to use.
Currently many products on the market should no longer be seen as competitors, but as partners where we can unite to provide the best solution to customers.
In this way, clients can choose the best work control and execution software, the best BIM software, the best accounting software for their country, and more; All these software can work fully integrated as if it were a single product.

Our future aspiration is to continue to consolidate ourselves as a reference in construction project management software and to continue expanding in more countries.
With our technology to manage all construction processes, we have helped hundreds of companies in 2021, and we are committed to continuing to grow; the improvements that we are planning for 2022 we are sure will benefit all the agents involved in the construction sector.
